Other
Via email to unit managers and designated staff leaders
Available via reporting system
Staff meetings, Electronic Event System
Information is discussed at meetings with leaders and at staff meetings. Patient information and
outcomes are shared but never posted. Data about falls is posted in the nursing units
Reports are viewed and managed at a local level of the location of the fall. Falls Prevention team analyzes
the data from the reports to identify house-wide trends.
Event reports are filled out online and can be accessed by managers and quality improvement staff. Postfall assessment are filled out and scanned to management, and falls committee representative
Fall with injury reports are sent to unit managers post-fall debrief. Statistic reports are available via STATIT
and a monthly report is shared to nursing managers at the monthly fall team meeting.
Data from risk, collected by Quality, shared with staff, managers, leadership, governing board, and medical
staff.
Shared with managers who, in turn, educate and follow up with staff. Stats are shared with managers and
staff.
Fall reports for hospital and per units with monthly rate and rolling 6 month rate, also have fall prevention
bundle audit data
12. What is the most successful approach that you feel has
contributed to reducing patient falls?
Text Response
Getting staff involved in assessing their own unit readiness to prevent falls. Making it a goal with incentives for
completion. Telling stories about falls and near misses. Integrating fall prevention with safe patient handling.
The visuals applied: This helps all staff identify which patients are high risk falls.(i.e) Gait belts hanging on door
frame, red booties on falls risk patients,bedside reporting also helps remind patient and family members.
Proper equipment, staff training, frequent reminder of importance, keeping it in the forefront at all times
Change in culture - falls are not expected or a natual part of being hospitalized.
Constant vigilance; staff accountability; manager engagement; unit-based champions; current data - metrics;
Falls prevalence monthly, multildisciplinary approach and the increase in lift equipment and the use of a lift
team. Staff awareness, daily huddle focus, and education
Root Cause and Common Cause Analysis with Direct Feedback to Staff, Units, Ministries.
Assessment tools that identify high risk patients, bed alarms, chair alarms, pt's are designated as a falls risk on
patient census board, and fall magnets are placed outside doors. If a fall occurs we do post fall assessment and
identify any contributing factors and or trends. Partnering with family/caregivers to team up to prevent falls.
Making our team multidisciplinary, Fall contracts and hourly rounding addressing the 4 Ps
Bed alarms connected to call system. awareness when falls occur what the reasons were reported to quality
and patient safety committee. clinical ladder RN project for 2014
Currently piloting. No One Walks Alone program. We got our infromation from Kaiser San Diego. Pilot has just
begun but has provided data that it may have a profound impact on our overall fall rate.
Repeat falls reduced by standardizing the interventions once a patient fell and the use of alarms to prevent falls
Required monthly audits done by each unit to ensure our falls prevention strategies are in place - magnets,
stickers, gait belts, bed alarms, white boards, risk scores etc.
13. To help us measure progress, please indicate your facility's program
status since starting the HEN collaboration to reduce patient falls.
A. "Getting Started": This level consists of implementing standard assessment
tools, protocols and prevention strategies.
B. "Working Harder": This level focuses on appointing "leads" to drive
improvement and identify SWOT (or champion) teams that includes unit nurse.
C. "Ahead of the Curve": This level focuses on implementing decision algorithms
and/or computerized decision support in the EMR based on patient risk
factors.

14. What barriers are you experiencing that are preventing you fromachieving
your goals to reduce patient falls?
Fall Prevention Barriers
Enough bandwidth to keep up the focus. Time, consensus, conflicting priorities.
Staff shortages. Patient acuity and volume. Buy in from unit managers and their staff
High falls risk patients inability to remember they can not ambulate on there own."Patients cognitive level"
Equipment issues, Many changes in workflow. Accountability issues.
Multiple competing priorities that seem to switch the focus away from fall prevention; increasing Nurse Patient
Ratios; staff turnover;
Consistency in standard implementation -- variability amoung staff performance.
Dementia patients who can not find SNF placement related to behavior--longer stays increase risk
Staff engagement with the process. Hospital does not bed alarms on every bed and alarms are not routed to
the nurse call system.
Staff perception with nursing ratios increasing is the hardest thing.
There are certain things that are outside of our control no matter how hard we work and no matter what
interventions we put into place! It's very frustrating..
Have been able to work through barriers. Zero falls with moderate or severe injury in 698 days (since we began
monitoring in Nov 2012.
100% of staff staying in bathroom with patient and not "turning to get something outside of the bathroom"
Consistently remembering bed alarms
In children, falls don't usually cause expensive harm or injury as in adults, so leadership often overlooks the
importance of fall prevention as a proactive process.
Final Thoughts
• 1. What changes have you made since joining the
HEN to reduce falls?
• 2. What have you done to recognize achievements in
fall reduction?
